Hamilton Revisited

Leaving Bronte Lagoon we decided to stop at Hamilton again where the RV stop also includes access to a washing machine. On the way we paused briefly at the bottom of the Tarraleah Gorge where the power Station of the same name and the Tungatinah Power Station sit each side of the bridge over the Nive River. Here the water pipes descend from both directions to feed the turbines below.

Crossing the bridge and continuing to Hamilton we found the Rv stop quieter than expected with only two other campers there; this time we set up on the river bank, the Clyde River being much lower than our visit a month ago.
This time we took a walk to St Peters Church which sits on the hill at the Southern entrance to town; the graves here date back to the 1830s and the stained glass commemorates different rectors and citizens. In the lower corner of the cemetery is a small cluster of rare Butane Pine trees.
From the Church we walked out to the small dam on the Clyde River and back along the Platypus Trail which we took on our last visit. Images here also of the bird life around the camp including Goldfinches, Greenfinches and Grey Fantails as well as a juvenile Silvereye and three Greenfinch chicks in a nest.
